Skoda launches new Monte Carlo trim for the Citigo, with prices starting from £10,590

The Skoda Citigo is now available in Monte Carlo trim, priced from £10,590.

Based on mid-range SE spec, the new variant is available as a three- or five-door, with the first deliveries scheduled for July.

There are black design details featured on all version of the Monte Carlo, helping the latest version of the city car stand out from the rest of the range. Included in the changes are alterations to the alloys, front and rear spoilers, rear diffuser, grille and door mirrors.

A sports steering wheel and Monte Carlo red/black upholstery make up the main visual changes to the interior, although Skoda’s PID infotainment system is also fitted as standard, featuring sat-nav, Bluetooth connectivity, a media player, and trip and vehicle information.

Only one engine option will be offered at launch, the 59bhp 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol currently available in the Citigo range. Paired to Skoda’s five-speed manual, the new Monte Carlo will manage 0-62mph in 14.4 seconds, whilst only emitting 105g/km CO2 and managing a combined 62.8mpg.

The £10,590 three-door is £1,810 more expensive than the equivalent SE model, while the five-door Monte Carlo sees an identical increase and starts at £10,940.

Superficial nonsense - a more powerful engine is what's really needed.

Yes, Skoda won't even let you have the 74bhp engine on the Sport and Monte Carlo versions. Still, as we all know, privacy glass and front foglights are what marks out 'sporty' cars these days.

It's actually to keep insurance costs for young drivers down.
